Posts Tagged ‘Nothing Can Scare Me Now: Managing Breast Cancer So It Doesn’t Manage You’

August 21, 2011 Coach Teresa here. I had asked Juliane Cortino to email me some photos of her book launch (yesterday). Here’s her report:

“We were 54 altogether at my book party. Really nice people. Novato City Councilwoman Pat Eklund stopped by and talked a few minutes about Relay For Life. The community mission director for the American Cancer Society, Joan Houkum, stopped in and spoke about a cancer fighting initiative on the ballot next June. I gave a short reading and sold 39 books! Very exciting for me. We stayed an hour longer that I’d booked the room for. They had to kick us out, and some people kept chatting on the sidewalk by their cars. The food was great. I really recommend Homeward Bound in Novato, CA for special events. They are the best!


Take care,

Juli C.”


I met Juliane Cortino at the Women’s National Book Association’s 2009 National Reading Group Month event at Book Passage. Since that meeting I have witnessed her kindness at planning meetings.


Author Juliane Cortino says:

“As a girl, I often said I would like to die at age forty. That way I would not have to grow sick or old. As a somewhat mature adult, I came to know the wisdom of growing older. Becoming sick was not in the plan. Illness struck without notice and showed itself during a routine exam. I share my experience in Nothing Can Scare Me Now: Managing Breast Cancer So It Doesn’t Manage You. The book is meant to comfort while it informs. I hope it will help you in your journey.

Born in Tokyo and educated around the globe, I remain devoted to exploring my world through the written word. I’ve been a reporter for United Press International, editor for Information Week magazine, and freelance news writer for ABC-TV. Subjects covered over the past thirty years range from food to health and technology. My articles have appeared in PC Week, The San Francisco Examiner, and The San Jose Mercury News.”

I cheer for Juliane, her book, and her advocacy work!
